Moscato Bianco is the oldest member of the Muscat family. one of the oldest grape varieties in the world. .
It may be produced in a number of wine styles and sweetness levels, each with its own regional tradition. Sparkling and slightly sparkling examples such as Pico Maccario’s are typically sweeter and tend towards melon flavours, with sweet, grapey smells. Dessert wines are typically produced in this way, whereas the dry varietals of the grape show a range of citrus, floral and spice aromas with a full, dry palate.
